Chucks are the quintessential shoe, complete lack of fuss, and completely stylish. Despite my closet full of shoes and my job designing them, I always end up wearing chucks. You can do just about anything in them until they are destroyed and then they are blessedly affordable so you can buy another pair.

Since I know The Sartorialist blog is not just abt fashion or fashio attitude, whatsoever, I may tell you that some of the pictures of the blog, in their whole ensemble (look, person and place) can transmit some kind of peace to all of us, readers… like this gal you've shot, she's definitely beautiful mainly because of his peaceful look and apparent comfort in her own skin!

Whats great about this photo is not what she is wearing but the shapes, colors and lines that make up your composition. To me its fun to study your application of the principles of making an image. I enjoy your site so much.
This picture/girl very much captures a common spirit and even style in dancers. It's feminine and simplistic and beautiful while also functional and comfortable. I love that her scarf ends around the same place as her dress and her tousled, chunky bangs. Wonerful.
